Amazing place, we are happy we chose this place!

  • 5 of 5

We decided to leave the cold behind and spend some time in beautiful Hawaii. Our choice could not have been any better. "The Honu Retreat" as this beautiful place is named rightfully impresses with amazing ocean views, very quiet and own deck w/ BBQ and stunning ocean views and closest proximity to all restaurants, shopping and activities Kona has to offer. For sure we will be back.

Honl´s Beach is right in front of the house, the amazing views from the deck of the condo guarantee ocean-views and sunsets while you sit in the lounge chairs of the beautiful terrace. Our time passed way too fast, but we will come back for sure.
